    An interesting-looking documentary on Charis Wilson, titled "The Eloquent Nude" will be broadcast by the Ovation network's "American Revolutionaries" series on Tuesday, 13 April at 11 PM.

    I recently stumbled onto Ovation network, and really enjoy many of the shows they air. Last night I caught a series called "Scenic Routes." In one segment the host traveled to Carmel and Point Lobos, interviewing Kim Weston and touring Edward's darkroom.

    This is a very nice film, and filled the house when we showed it for Vermont Center for Photography a couple of years ago.
    I highly recommend it.

    "The Eloquent Nude" is fantastic and available for sale HERE. Even better than the feature itself is the "making of" film included on the DVD.

    I wouldn't call it a Charis Wilson Documentary so much as a documentary about the relationship and resulting work produced by Edward and Charis.

    Aside from buying - the link I provided will take you to several different 2 - 5 minute clips from the feature. HERE is a direct link to that page.
